As most of you guys know, I am a diehard New York Ranger fan. When SBNation began sponsoring hockey blogs last year, I immediately threw my hat in the ring to run the Rangers site. If there is one thing I learned rooting for a hockey team that went 54 years between Stanley Cup Championships, its that good things come to those who wait.
So it is with great pleasure that I announce that beginning today, SBNation launches Blueshirt Banter, a blog about the Rangers hosted by yours truly. I'm really excited about the opportunity, Ranger fans are as passionate as Giants fans, and I expect running the site to be a great experience.
I'll still be co-writing here on Big Blue View. The Giants and Rangers are the two sports loves of my life, so the way I look at it is I've got the two best hobbies a guy could ask for, although at some point I still want to go fishing.
On that note, I would like to take this opportunity to thank Ed, because if he didn't offer me the chance to co-write on Big Blue View, I would never have gotten a shot at hosting my own site. So thank you Ed, I am going to follow the example you've set for having a great team blog.
I would also like to thank all of you, the readers, because if you weren't enjoying what I write, Ed would have fired me and brought in shenkthetank.
So make sure and stop by Blueshirt Banter and say hi.
By the way, my son Jimmy came up with the concept for that snazzy logo you see up there.
Thanks again everyone,
